Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Making muffins today. Didn't have whey powder and substituted non-fat dry milk and didn't have cottage cheese and substituted plain low fat yogurt (researched subs and these were suggestions). Will rate after tasting :)

Well it was okay, but kind of dense. and maybe my substitutes didn't help.

They were great next I will add a pinch of salt and the rasins and walnut. Very moist and great test. Submitted by:

I bake all the time, and made this for friends who were looking for a healthy breakfast alternative. Sorry to say, but these were horrible. I'll go back to my original plan, and alter a regular carrot cake recipe to be low cal/fat and add in the protein. Submitted by:

This was amazingly good, a little dense, but the taste is there. I made it into a 8" square cake instead, and frosted it with Fat-Free Cream Cheese frosting. Everyone liked it, and I'll make it again. Submitted by:

I made this, and half way through, I realized there was no flour. GREAT! Less calories.
Also, I subbed in ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese, added 1/2 cup walnuts, and the protein powder I used (Weider 90% protein) bumped up the protein to a whopping 14 grams. A little dry. I'll make again!

Very good! I couldn't find the protein powder, but I did throw in some ground flax seed. I didn't us the muffin paper, sprayed the pan w/ Baker's Choice (the spray that has the flour added) and they came right out! Used apple sauce too instead of pineapple. Delicious! Submitted by:

I love this recipe! Impressive nutritional stats and easy to make/modify. Used unsweetened applesauce in place of crushed pineapples. If using muffin papers, they will stick since there's no butter/oil, so I'd recommed either spraying them with Pam first, or not using them at all Submitted by:
